Humility helps

The most effective leaders are humble according to a study of 1500 workers in Australia, China, German, India, Mexico and the US. To be fair, humility is one of four critical leadership factors for creating an environment in which employees from different demographic backgrounds feel included.
According to the study conducted by global non-profit organisation Catalyst, employees (both male and female) who see altruistic or selfless behaviour in their managers are more likely to feeling “included” in their teams and be more innovative by suggesting new product ideas and ways of working better.

Altruistic and selfless behaviour is characterised by:

  • Acts of humility such as learning from criticism and admitting mistakes
  • Empowering followers to learn and develop
  • Acts of courage, such as taking personal risks for the greater good, and
  • Holding employees responsible for results.
